I can't give you Celica specific advice, but with the Datsun (Bosch) fuel injection, you always start with checking and cleaning all the connectors on the engine.

Talking It keeps getting better!

I've recently completed the 3 speed to 4 speed auto gearbox conversion that I've been doing on my Datsun for what seems like forever.
The only bad thing about it was that I couldn't use a late model electronically controlled auto with TC lock-up.

Now, after driving it, I find that the 4N71B box that I've used, DOES have lock-up. Not electronically controlled, but lock-up none the less.

Woot!
Been working on my pulse and glide, and managed to (FINALLY) break 30 mpg with my usual mix of 60 (city) / 40 (highway) driving. I've not changed my highway driving, staying between 63 and 65 for all of that. This is in my S13 (the 93 240sx).

How's everyone else doing?

With warm weather, premium fuel, and a kill switch, this tank is looking like 35+ all city. My car is saying 33.6, which is almost always at least 2 mpg under rated. So at the very worst, 33.6 mpg city.

Right now, I am near 500 miles and I am not under the Empty bar yet. It seems like its gonna be a good tank!

I spent the morning loading the celica on a equipment trailer(borrowed) and got it down to a old school mechanic that was highly recomended to me. He is booked 2-3 weeks out, so I will have to wait a little longer but she should runng within a month or so, (I hope).

Just started the new engine in my IS300 for the first time. Everything seems to be fine and will be on the road shortly. I will be giving my Civic some much needed downtime and will be racking up some miles on the IS over the next few weeks!

She is back on the road, yay. Been driving her for 3 weeks and she is doing great. Best tank to date is 30mpg, I haven't been very nice to it though I am toning down now. Running to Boise @the begining of Aug. Going to try for 40mpg, did 37 on my last trip. Speed limit is 55mph for most of the 350mi. Current goals are 35 mpg on daily commutes and 40 mpg on trips. I replaced one side window with lexan, (neighbor kid decided it would be fun to bounce a scythe on the window) , got enough lexan to do the other side as well.running a engnbldr 268 cam, one belt for the water pump and alt. No ac , cruise, interior, power steering, clutch fan, ect...
Determined the previous cam was off a tooth, so "degreed" and the car ran hot, no good. Now it runs 10x better and seems to be slightly less senisitive to aero changes.

Is this the Celica?
